Contempo Choral Festival Open to All Non-Traditional Choirs
The Alabama Chapter of ACDA is pleased to announce the 8th Annual Contempo Choral Festival. The festival will be held on Friday and Saturday, January 13-14, 2023 at Vestavia Hills High School. The event is open to traditional and non-traditional ensembles of all grade levels, ages, genres, sizes, and levels of experience. This includes elementary, middle, high school, and collegiate show choirs, jazz choirs, pop a cappella groups, and more! Three judges will adjudicate each choir based on their performance (not compared to other choirs) followed by a post-performance critique from one of our judges. Each choir will receive a plaque with their festival rating on it, as well as the adjudicators’ scores and comments.
This is an adjudicated event open to any middle school or high school show or jazz choir in the state of Alabama. Choirs participating may use live or taped accompaniment. Each choir will have a maximum 25 minutes to set-up, perform, and clear the stage. Registration is $300 per choir, $250 per each additional choir for any given school. Checks should be made payable to "Alabama ACDA" and mailed to the address below OR you can email Jim Schaeffer to request a link to pay with credit card online.
